Louisiana is the perfect place to take in traditional southern American cuisine. Creole food is uniquely influenced by French, African, Spanish, and Native American cultures. These days, classic dishes are served up abundance, and fresh seafood is always the star of the show. The Gulf of Mexico lends a hand in providing some of America's best shrimp, crawfish, and oysters.
Despite their very different origins, the one thing Cajun and Creole food have in common is spice. Famous dishes such as gumbo and etouffee can be found in most restaurants, and have a well earned reputation for their soul food appeal. More exotic offerings typically include raw oysters, and even rattlesnake or alligator. No trip to the state is complete without a post-dinner chicory coffee, and a big plate of hot beignets.
